Last month, the council's cabinet agreed to continue with the Greenwich Time free-sheet, despite the Code of Recommended Practice on Local Authority Publicity that calls for local authorities to reduce publications to four a year.

However, Greenwich head of comms Stuart Godfrey told PRWeek: 'The decision has now been forwarded to the scrutiny committee, which is expected to discuss it in September.'

The council publishes 48 issues of Greenwich Time a year, making it one of the most frequently published newspapers by a council, beaten only by Tower Hamlets' East End Life.

In June, Tower Hamlets Council said it planned to continue publishing at the same frequency, explaining this would be the most 'cost-effective and popular' option.
